Diagnosing Houseplant Problems
Midwinter is a highly stressful time of year for houseplants due to the relatively low light and low humidity found in most homes. Plants under stress will show poor growth and become more susceptible to pests and diseases, so we often notice problems on our plants around this time of year. The Web site House Plants: Proper Care and Problem Solving can help you diagnose and solve some of the most common problems.
